This paper proposes a method to recognize dialect on personal computers. Proposal method pays attention to dialects’ emotion content of speakers. Dialects have much emotional expression compared with standard dialect. Therefore, this system judges sentences including some dialects using Emotion Judgment System inputting dialects as standard dialects. Emotion Judgment System answers wrong emotion as standard dialect if inputs include some dialect. This paper treats dialect used in Nagano prefecture, Japan. This paper shows that using speaker’s emotion can solve the disambiguation of the dialect and the standard dialect.
